Kingussie High School has confirmed that it will be holding its rescheduled Covid vaccination clinic next week for pupils aged 12 to 15
The session to provide first jags for junior pupils will take place on Tuesday (December 7).
The initial programme had to be postponed as too many pupils were absent on the proposed date in mid-November because of Covid or being a Covid contact.
For the vast majority of pupils it will be their first jag.
Headteacher Ian Adamson has told parents: " Unfortunately the NHS can only vaccinate 12-15 year olds on December 7.
"Any school pupils aged 16 and older must attend a vaccination clinic outside of school time.
"I did specifically ask for 16-18 year olds to have the opportunity to receive the vaccination in school on December 7 but this request could not be done.
"I apologise for the postponement of the vaccinations on Friday 19th November but it is good news that we have the vaccination team coming to Kingussie High School.
"This will reduce unnecessary travel and disruption to learning and teaching for our pupils."
